Question: How should I migrate my source from other version control systems?

Answer

You can manually export files from the version-control system from which you are migrating and then import the files into TFS version control. To preserve file history or other attributes from the version-control system from which you are migrating, you can use the TFS version control object model to write your own migration tool.

Microsoft is currently working on a ClearCase converter; when it is ready, it will be announced on the TFS Migration blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/tfs_migration

Component Software has created a converter that is compatible with VSS, GNU RCS, CS-RCS, GNU CVS, and Subversion (SVN).
